Better if you buy an aftermarket cooler and after that do the tests. If your temp are good in idle in load must be good. The problem is when the temps are high in idle , is not your case.

Temps are normal at idle.

There are many software you can use to monitor temps:

Real Temp

Your mobo has temps devices for CPU and Chassis temperature sensing

In order to check temps at full load you might need to stress your system. A good free software for the job is AIDA64 Extreme Edition
